This LP is more slick & commercial than the other Irakere records I've heard. 

But I really dig it! It's infectious, irresistible music -- even if the "jazz quotient" is lower.

Irakere at that time rarely disappointed ....

Frank Capp / Nat Pierce - Juggernaut (Concord, 1977)

It's a bit disconcerting (pun intended) how much these guys sound like the Basie band. They may as well have been a "tribute band" -- but Basie & his band were still doing their thing in 1977. Tribute acts usually come after the original no longer exists. Not here though.

Hank Crawford - Roadhouse Symphony (MIlestone, 1985)

The LP cover art practically screams "It's the 1980s!" -- but the music is timeless.

Wish I could post larger files. A 100 KB limit is quite restrictive.

Bird´s last album, if I´m Right. 

I have 8 LPs Charlie Parker on Verve, all japanese LP´s from the 70´s. But the strange Thing is, they are Vol 1-8, but not chronological.

Yes, his final studio session, from December 10, 1954. Perhaps his best recorded studio session. His sound on alto is quite vividly captured. The master take of Love for Sale is the best.

Yes you are Right, it´s really very good recorded and very interesting for the participation of Billy Bauer on guitar. 

And Bird still was a master torwards the end, I also like the autumn 1954 live set with John Lewis, Pery Heath and Kenny Clarke ("Cool Blues" "My Funny Valentine" and "The Song is You". Very fine Bird indeed.

The Music Improvisation Company—-1969/1970———( Incus/Honest Jon)

Honest Jon records have been busy with  Incus reissues. This release seemed a good as place as any to start with Bailey, Parker , Muir and Davies. I’m really struck by Jamie Murr’s innovative percussion.

I've bought two of their Company reissues. Nicely done but unconvinced that cutting them at 45rpm enhances the experience of this music very much, especially when they were sidelong pieces at 33rpm.

I sent them an email with this observation and they got very upset...

I have an original of that Music Improv Co. title. Excellent stuff, as is the ECM
